• Transforming Lives Through Psychiatry

    Explore the integral role of psychiatry in our comprehensive healthcare approach

Psychiatry Residency

General Program Information

  • The four-year Psychiatry Program trains residents in the rapid advances in Psychiatry and Neurology.  It provides the correlation with the study of Genetics, Molecular Biology, Psychopharmacology, Epidemiology, and Imaging.  Psychotherapy remains a valuable component of the psychiatric practice and resident physicians will receive clinical experience in this field.  
  • Established in 2014, our Psychiatry Residency Program provides patient care for the underinsured and underserved communities of South Florida and prepares resident physicians to deliver quality and competent psychiatric care to individuals with a wide variety of psychopathologies.  Some of those include psychotic disorders, mood disorders, dementing illness, and substance use.  
  • Our program prepares the resident physician to work with patients who range in cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.  Resident physicians expand their experience by working with professionals such as physicians in other specialties, social workers, and allied health professionals to ensure delivery of comprehensive quality patient care.  
  • Residents receive the opportunity to enrich their research skills by participating in quality improvement projects and scholarly activities.  The physician will have the opportunity to work with specialists in medical research design and implementation from our partnering academic organizations.  Residents are encouraged to present at local, regional, and national meetings as well as submit original works to peer reviewed journals.   
  • By the end of their training, the residents are ready to enter their specialty practice or continue into sub-specialty fellowship training.
